Two in our party. One had "Papdi Chaat" as a starter & "Banjara Dal" with Roomali Roti. The other had the fried fish (Fish Koliwara) & lamb boti kabab masala with Tandoori Roti. As with Indian dishes, there was enough for us to share. The papdi in the papdi chaat was thick and slightly tough. I would have preferred to... More

This place is descent if you are hungry and staying in downtown area and wants to taste some spicy food after a long day downtown tours etc. Its well worth the drive to Devon Street to Sabri Nihari or Usmania if you really want to tase athentic indian/Pakistani food.

The quantity was the first thing that struck me. Ordered a biryani, naan and the beigan bharta. Food was great. Please ensure you make a reservation if you are going on a weekend. Very close to the redline subway as well

Not a fan of buffet, so I wish I had gone when they had menu only. My family enjoyed their choices and were very pleased.

I love indian buffets, but I don't know much about what all those curries with the lentils and chick peas and things are called. But it was good. And I was fine that being in the river north local it traded in a little authenticity in order to cater to the local population. Pros: Decor was good, and they get... More

Nice place to have your Indian food to your taste though prices are on little high side. Service is good thus delays during rush hours. No wifi in the house compare to other restaurants. If that available it could have been better.

Closely located in downtown Chicago near Clark street. Good Indian food restaurant with many options on both Veg & Non-Veg. with Bar attached. Friendly & smiling staff and serves quickly. The only flip side is the price. Indian food doesn't cost so much that it charges, well that is always debatable.

I wish I could give this establishment a negative review. I went there twice in the last one year and I do not vividly remember the experience the first time except that the food was below average. However service and ambience were okay , given its a restaurant in the city and was pricey. The latest time, we went on... More

Atmosphere was lovely and clean at the downtown location. Chicken tikka masala and madras chicken were delicious. My husband and I ordered the "dinner for two". It was a small platter of overly cooked extremely spicy meat chopped in chunks. I think this may have been leftovers from the lunch buffet. Stick with the food in sauces over rice and... More

One of the rare restaurants with Indian cuisine that I could find in downtown. A decent Indian buffet and ala carte on offer with plenty of vegetarian options. Good dessert too. Average taste though. Waiters are attentive.
